The mission of BEDS Plus Care is to help vulnerable individuals stabilize their lives through housing and supportive services. Our vision is to end homelessness one person at a time in Southwest Suburban Cook County, where we primarily serve the Townships of Lemont, Lyons, Palos, Proviso, Orland, Riverside, Stickney and Worth. As a Suburban Cook County Coordinated Entry partner, we also serve prioritized clients from throughout the County.
From mid-March through the end of July 2020, BEDS delivered 12,506 nights of emergency shelter to 234 clients and provided 37,518 meals. BEDS successfully prevented any COVID-19 infections among congregate shelter guests and BEDS staff by strictly adhering to CDC guidelines.
